Bus down A816 to Blàran. Track northwards to communications mast, then north-eastwards over rough grass and heather, with occasional tracks, to summit. Sunny intervals, light wind. Extensive view: Jura faint, Mull clearer, Ben Cruachan and hills to north touched with cloud. Down south-eastwards, making for Cruach Coire Lorn.mainnirnamfiadh24/08/2020
1st of 15 tops on a 28.8km circular from the A816 at Blaran, using track to transmission mast then veering off at NM86039 17787, heading NE direct for the summit, easy-going with sheep trods and occasional overgrown tracks. I recorded 344m @ NM 87089 19175 on a grassed over rock. Nice top, onwards SE over the 340m contour heading for Cruach Coire Lorn...Dazingdale15/05/2019
